another chance. >> now have questions about the refinery fire and why chevron diverted plumes from a monetary system. >> i want to hear the truth. >> the bay area air quality management outlawed this as a practice at refineries. still it can be used in an emergency with monitors nearby to detect pollutants in the air. the air district said that chevron had a pipe in place at the richmond refinery by passing the monitors. by law chevron was supposed to remove that pipe or monitor it and they did neither. >> they are continuing this because they have utilize this 27 times through 2005 and 2009. >> it was not discovered until 2009 when inspectors checking out another facility happen to notice. >> face all the firings of it went to the monitoring system to see how much it was. and the monitor was showing no flow. so they saw it visually, and i thought something was up. >> chevron remove the pipe in
6:01pm
2009 and 80 $170,000 fine to the air district. the company said it was used to legalize the line. >> there's a monitor on that floor 24 hours per day and the reason we could sure that that is because we had that that and openly shared. >> those are all manual adjustments that they make. so when they did operate as they knew they were doing it wrong .. >> it is disclosed locally but the epa is now investigating whether any of this amounts to criminal activity. the general manager maintains that safety is the number-one priority at the refinery, but could not answer why the pipe was in place and how it was used. >> i cannot explain, that is what the investigation will establish with the epa. >> but the original intent of this meeting was to clear the air about what happened and to let the public know why this happened. the general manager of the refinery is expected to tell the
6:02pm
public that i think there was a thinning in the pipe that essentially caught fire and had to inspect the pipe. but they missed about 5 ft. above that 200 ft. tight end that was the part that failed. >> such a small thing did so much damage. thank you. >> political protest or homeless camp? is there a difference? it turns out yes, especially if you intend to sleep there. the city of san francisco is removing the people living under 280 near the cal train station. this is certainly not the only homeless camp in town. there's a far more visible homeless in canada that is going nowhere. >> an interesting twist in san fransisco, a bit of politics and homelessness. this can hear, chp was supposed to be coming in this morning and clearing out but apparently caltrans does not have the manpower or the materials to seal the area off. it is interesting because there is another camp on market street
6:03pm
being handled slightly differently. here's the story. this is a homeless camp under interstate 280. this is another homeless camp in the middle of downtown san francisco. the one under the freeway is being told to move and the one on market street is pretty much being left alone. the three-freeway was shut down after a fire. but if you put a sign up and make it a political statement then it is not a homeless can't anymore. it is a free-speech issue. >> well, i think that is something that we are figuring out and i think that there are some questions that have come up as a result of that and i think that you have the police and the health department taking a look at that >> the city has no hesitation about the freeway camp. >> you have to establish that it is not safe to live under a freeway, it is not a good environment. >> that is not how these people feel.
6:04pm
>> this is the safest little community that we could possibly find. >> if they get kicked out? >> we will come back here, what no where else to go. >> if cops persist then it will likely end up >> pretty much on a doorstep. that is where they want to send us. >> the city will do everything they can to get these people into shelters, it remains to be seen where they wind up but it is interesting, this is a homeless camp, but one down on market street is a political statement and if you recall at justin herman plaza that political statements stayed up for quite a while until the police and city hall finally decided to do something about it. >> thankyou. >> a word officers responded to a bar fight ending in the killing of a suspected gunman. the fight happened early this morning at the dirty bird bart. cate caugurian is here with officers' thought they needed to pull the trigger.
6:05pm
>> a long stretch of road closed for hours as police gather evidence at two different crime scenes. hayward police say the first one started at the dirty bird lounge before 1:00 a.m.. >> calls indicated that there were shots fired inside of the lounge, and that someone may have been shot. >> that person was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. witnesses say the suspect fled the scene and drove to this intersection. officers were able to spot a car matching the description and as they tried to confront the suspect things turned deadly. >> the driver quickly responded by reversing his vehicle directly at the officers officers recognized the imminent threat, of deadly force on them, they stopped the suspect's actions. >> officers opened fire at this car, killing the suspect. >> the motor vehicle being driven that you have to be viewed as deadly force and the officers responded appropriately. >> those officers are now on
6:06pm
administrative leave and the lieutenant says there are several details to sort out. >> these investigations take time, we are interviewing witnesses right now at the police department and the officers will be interviewed sometime soon. >> investigators are trying to figure out how the fight started in the first place and they say they plan on reviewing surveillance footage today from nearby businesses. >> restaurant and shop owners upset with hooligans that wreak havoc in the mission district. but they are also upset with police. as joe vasquez reports despite the mayhem, no arrests were made. >> you are looking at the lives it wellness center, a gym right here on valencia near 18th and you can still see some of the damage from the demonstration friday night, the owner here is one of many who expressed themselves to police today. san francisco police are hearing
6:07pm
it from all sides. demonstrators took to the streets two nights in a row to protest the fact that officers opened fire on a man thursday night. at a town hall this morning many applauded officers, especially after the man shot by police was identified as a 22 year-old, a recent parolee in prison for shooting two people including a 15 year-old innocent bystanders. police say that he pointed a loaded machine gun at officer but the cop quickly shot the gunman. >> make a mistake, that is a murder weapon, it was designed to kill more than one person. >> some say the cubs could have done more to quell demonstrations. >> projectiles, throwing things at policemen, and absolutely no rest? this is unbelievable. >> friday night our cameras watched as the mob slashed tires and busted out windows.
6:08pm
milton o'brien, owner of the jim said that the cost protected their own police station. but otherwise refuse to confront or rest demonstrators. >> that is unsatisfactory, impersonators actually telling these protesters that it is ok to do what they're doing, that they will sit at cannot do anything? san fransisco is a progressive city, but there needs to be a certain point where people are held responsible for their actions. >> we are back out here live, the police chief said cut his officers to confront some demonstrators, took away a hammer and other tools and one officer, he said, was actually injured slightly in the melee but he says that it is a fine line out here, they do not want to make matters worse to exacerbate the situation. that is the term that he used.
6:09pm
but they do want to make arrests and they're asking people to call into a hot line. they did not make any arrests during the demonstrations. >> it seems to a lot of business owners, from what i hear, that if they do not step in some time, it is just going to get so out of control and then have a situation that they cannot do anything about? >> and as you heard the owner of the gym say, it sends the message that it will never be confronted so come down to the mission, the chief says that he does not want to send that message. >> other bay area at lyons a san fransisco man suspected in a trio of disturbing incidents at san mateo schools, including an attempted kidnapping. police say that the 25 year-old assaulted and adopted a 9 year- old girl from our side elementary on friday. she kicked him and got away. investigators think that he is the same man seen lurking around two nearby schools earlier that day. >> the chp says a pedestrian hit
6:10pm
and killed on 680 walked out into traffic early this morning. but investigators have no idea why. at least two vehicles at the man near stone ridge road exit in pleasanton. the accident shut down the southbound lanes for three hours. >> jury selection began for the woman at the center of the san fransisco crime lab scandal this is file video of the 62 year-old deborah madison accused of stealing cocaine that was being held as evidence in 2009. she was a technician at the now closed laboratory, the theft led to the dismissal of hundreds of criminal cases. >> a debate that has lasted 80 years, the three strikes law considered to be the nation's most harsh when dealing with repeat offenders. some argue it is not right to mix non-violent offenders with violent ones. graced lee is here with details on how proposition 36 could make significant changes. >> if supporters of proposition 36 have it their way, three
6:11pm
strikes would be forever altered. their argument is that there are thousands in prison that do not belong there and it is costing taxpayers millions every year. >> as it stands right now in california, if you are convicted of three felonies, you can get 25 years to life in prison. the third strike could be any kind a felony, violent or not. >> the voters passed this law they wanted to focus on violent criminals. >> he says that was the intent but that is not what is really happening. instead the a lot is sending some to prison for life for cases that he says can border on ridiculous. >> that is to victims' rights groups want to keep locked up, people who are violent and dangerous criminals but not those that steal a loaf of bread, there are many different examples of people whose bold change from a parked car or went into a fast-food restaurants and filled it with soda instead of
6:12pm
water and they are serving life sentences at taxpayers' expense. >> a nonpartisan agency estimates that proposition 36 could save the state $100 million per year. >> that does not even address the victimization himself .. >> he lost his daughter in 1993 when she was taken from his home, he was a violent criminal and had been recently paroled the three strikes law passed in 1994 partially in response to outrage of this case. >> if we had had three strikes when pauley was alive, paul would still be alive, it is as simple as that because this guy had many strikes prior to getting out of prison. >> he says that he wants to keep the three strikes law as it is, meaning that he is opposed to proposition 36. the reason? he believes that three strikes works. >> if we take the very serious and violent guys and start putting them back on the streets, you can only imagine what kind of mayhem will ensue and that is exactly what will
6:13pm
happen if we repealed three strikes. >> you might remember there was a similar initiative on the ballot in 2004, it failed with only 47 percent of the vote. this year a recent poll and the california business roundtable shows that proposition 36 has a huge amount of support nearly 78%. but opponents say, look who'sainst majority of district attorneys and police office associations in the state. >> i am len ramirez in san jose where an elementary school principal accused of dealing in drugs was brain in court, coming up, the dating website that was used in the police sting operation. >> he spent almost 20 years in prison for a murder that he may not have committed. what led to his exoneration? >> lions live in cramped quarters and animal rights groups are speaking out about the
6:14pm
vo: for years, sacramento politicians have chopped away funds for our schools. today, we're forty-seventh out of fifty in per-pupil funding.
6:15pm
now these politicians say unless we send more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. thirty-eight.
6:16pm
>> in the south bay, it is a school principal facing disciplinary action and possibly prison, after an undercover drug bust. the principal at montague elementary school is now facing drug charges after being arrested at 8 cal train station. len ramirez is in san jose with more on the tip that police received and the dating website that led to the arrest. >> that is right, drug agents with the state department of justice began looking into the principal's activity shortly after receiving a tip that he was dealing drugs and that a way to approach him to set up a sting operation may have been through a gate dating website.
6:17pm
the santa clara school principal eric lewis showed no emotion as he made his first court appearance on the charges that he was dealing drugs. >> he is alleged to have offered to furnish both methamphetamine and g 8 to speak to an undercover police officer. >> acting on a tip that the principle, for the last seven years, was involved in drugs the state narcotics officers set up a sting, one officer began chatting with him on a date dating website and arranged to meet him at 8 cal train station where he was arrested thursday night and officers then got a search warrant for his apartment with a found a cache of other drugs. >> quarter of an ounce of methamphetamine and 7 pills of an dna or ecstasy, and three or four vials of g 8 speech. >> that is also known as the date rape drug. >> i am in shock. >> the school community was blindsided.
6:18pm
>> he seemed like a very nice man. it totally caught me off-guard. >> working with kids, you teach them not to do drugs and stay away from that but then secretly that is what he is doing on the side? i am very shocked. >> school officials notified parents and explain to students that their principal had been arrested, although investigators seized his school computer for potential evidence, there's no indication yet that he was dealing or furnishing drugs while on campus. >> it is difficult because of the students certainly like him and respected him, and eyes think the message that we have given kids is that at times people make the wrong choice. >> mr. lewis will be back in court on friday for a bail hearing. he is currently being held on $25,000 bail here in santa clara county but as for the school, they have appointed an interim principal but this comes at a time when the school was on an upswing and mr. lewis is being credited for being a very effective principle. it is being called a tragedy all around.
6:19pm
>> >> a state lawmaker has been cleared of drunk driving charges. but it was not cheap. when the assemblyman robert hernandez was stopped by concord police back in march, blood test showed that he had a 0.08 local level. but a martina's .. found him not guilty after a seven day trial that included several expert witnesses hired by the defense. he tells the contra costa county times that the trial costing $15,000 and adds that the money was worth it. >> a judge in los angeles has cleared a former gang member of murder. 19 years after his conviction. there was cheering in the courtroom as the judge ordered the release of john smith. prosecutors said they were convinced their chief witness who recently recanted, had lied about the 1993 killing. but he had said that police pressured him to identify smith as the shooter. his grandmother mortgaged her
6:20pm
home to pay for the initial offense. >> i am happy. i am sad. but the part of me that was in there with him, i am free now to. >> the 37 year-old smith entered the courtroom in that prison jumpsuit but was released by the end of the day. >> a follow-up tonight on a story that we brought you about lions living in cramped quarters at the oakland zoo. voters are being asked to pay more to support the zoo. but if they do not then mike sugerman tells us that animal rights activist who sold his video say that the zoo should reconsider keeping the big cats. >> last week we showed you how the oakland zoo was campaigning to pass tax measure a one. a dollar per month parcel tax for 25 years, to fix up the oakland zoo animal quarters at no one park. which, by the looks of things really need to be fixed up. >> these cats are very
6:21pm
dangerous. but chain-link is my friend. >> the conditions are bad, but are they as bad as shown here? >> certainly the conditions that are shown in the video are unacceptable. to me the situation looks potentially unsafe for humans and certainly into named for animals >> we talked to catherine doyle who is in a group that is critical of the zoo, but she said that the oakland zoo is among the better ones that video made her shiver. >> you cannot tell a whole lot from a video often times. >> she is the director of animal care at the oakland zoo and she works with critical animal groups. she admits that it looks bad and the measure could help change that but she says it is not unsafe. >> the top priority is animal welfare. we would not bring animals to the zoo if we did not think that we could take the very best care of them. >> we believe that if a zoo is going to keep a certain species that need to be able to provide
6:22pm
for their physical, social, and psychological needs. if you cannot do that and you should not hold that species. >> the oakland zoo would love to give their animals more room and want to expand and there's plenty of room here in the park for an expansion but that plan is being fought by people who say that, among other things, more expansion would ruin the natural habitat of the park. and the tigers? no matter what their circumstance now, it could not be worse from where they came from and texas, kept in tiny closures 24 hours per day. if the measure fails then sue officials say they will still make improvements but it would have to raise rates and keep many people wait. what is the point of that? if this was not accessible to everyone? >> i want to know what to have to die of breast cancer. >> a medical breakthrough rewriting the book on how doctors treat breast cancer. details ahead. >> details on your forecast as well, all summer long san
